Each Texas county submits to TIDC indigent defense plans and procedures. Indigent defense plans are due by November 1st of each odd-numbered year. The plans describe counties' policies and procedures for magistration, indigence determination, attorney qualifications, appointment of counsel, attorney fee schedules, and more.
You can explore county indigent defense plans by clicking on the link below, which will take you to TIDC's data website. Note: counties often have multiple indigent defense plans. For instance, a county may have separate plans for district courts, county courts, and juvenile courts.
